Hull Services is proud to present Chrissy Morin with the second Piitaasaapii Hull Services Indigenous Leadership Scholarship.
Chrissy has been working in the field of Social Work for the last three years and has loved her time helping others. However, because she does not have an accredited post-secondary education, her learning curve has been steep. “During these past few years working for Hull Services and other community organizations I have developed many skills and gained a lot of valuable knowledge,” said Chrissy.
To help her gain a wider understanding of the field, and broaden her perspective with the clientele she currently works with, Chrissy has recently started the two-year Social Work diploma at Mount Royal University. “With the skills and knowledge I will gain in the social work program, I will be able to contribute more to Hull Services as a whole, and I will in turn, be more involved in the planning and practices in developing my personal way of practice and have the opportunity to participate in more thorough program development initiatives, “ said Chrissy. During her time at MRU Chrissy also plans to continue to explore her cultural background, which will in turn giver her an additional lens to utilize in her scope of practice.
Once Chrissy has completed the social work diploma, she plans to continue her education at the University of Calgary to complete the Bachelors of Social Work degree. “I intend to become a Registered Social Worker in the province of Alberta,” said Chrissy. “I know that working towards gaining my post-secondary schooling will teach me new skills that will eventually help me obtain my Level 2 and Level 3 professional development checklist here at Hull Services.”
Congratulations, Chrissy and we look forward to the skills and knowledge you develop during your time at MRU be applied to your practice at Hull Services.
